New York (May 14, 2007)–Carlson Audio of Seattle is providing the sound reinforcement system and technical support for the current North America concert tour by indie rock band Modest Mouse, with the system headlined by EAW KF760 Series line arrays. The band is touring in support of its recently released album, We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, which debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard chart.
The system is looked after by Allan Bagley, head system tech, who noted that the flown main arrays are made up of several KF760 full-range line array modules above two to three KF761 specialized wide-dispersion modules that help meet coverage needs at the front of the audience areas. “The KF760 rig is doing its usual fine job of meeting and exceeding whatever full-range coverage needs that happen to come up along the way,” Bagley noted during system setup prior to a sold-out show at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre.
The system is enhanced with EAW SB1000 dual-18-inch-loaded subwoofers as well as compact EAW loudspeakers placed at the front of the stage when needed to offer additional front-fill to the very first rows. Further, EAW KF850 full-range concert loudspeakers are supplying stage fill. And, the drive racks for the system feature EAW MX8750 digital signal processors.
